CALLUM Wilson vowed to let his football do the talking when it came to bidding for a place in the England squad.

The 26-year-old struck his 50th goal for Cherries in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

England assistant manager Steve Holland was reportedly in attendance at Vitality Stadium as Wilson recorded his seventh goal of the season in all competitions.

Asked about his England chances, the striker said: “I don’t want to talk my way into the squad. I want to play my way in and focus game-by-game here for Bournemouth.”

Wilson played under Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate at under-21 level, coming off the bench in place of Harry Kane during a friendly against France in November 2014.

England are on Thursday set to name their squad for home fixtures against the United States and Croatia.

Boss Eddie Howe said: “It’s difficult for me to speak on behalf of Gareth. I am sure he and his team will be watching every player that is English and doing well in the Premier League – Callum will definitely come into that bracket.

“He’s a striker in form, is confident at the moment and producing some good performances for us – that is all he can do.”
